Dark Genesis (The Darkling Trilogy, #1)

I really enjoyed this book and thought it was brilliant. I truly felt as if I were on a journey with Luna through her trials and tribulations. The subject matter is one that does not usually draw me in regards to slavery in the United States. I found that to be the most intriguing part. The character, even though she lived her life in that manner, kept it distant from her soul and I appreciated the distance and it was not quite so heartbreaking to read. The men and women secondary characters were brave in the face of such adversity and well drawn. Basically it was just the world that surrounded the main story of her relationship with Avery.

It was refreshing and I will read the next one because I want to know more. These are the best kinds of books for me – where I want to know more.

The reason that it is not 5 stars was because I thought the ending was kind of rushed. No more details in that area because I really do not want to do spoilers.

But I found it to be an excellent read.

And the cover art is gorgeous!

Review: Outcast Mine by Jamie Craig

I loved this book.  It is a male/male science fiction romance.   It grabbed me right at the start and carried me breakneck speed to the conclusion.  I never knew what was going to happen and the twists and turns were quite delightful.  The characters were well drawn and the tension was excellent, it was well written… loved it!

This is a short review because I do not have much more to say about it.

This was a very interesting book.  I just love romances but this was not a classic romance, this was a BDSM-kinky romance, so the usual bells and whistles were not there.  There were times where I thought there was no love, just need.  Love is different than need to me.  I am not sure that I am a fan of sex without love in books that I read.  This is how I felt the first part of the ebook.

But I have an understanding of BDSM in literature and for that, straight up, I think this book had more romantic leanings and was very well written and quite excellent.  But I wanted just a tad more romance, needed (smiles) more romance.

So if you are looking for some type of romance laced with BDSM, this is not the book for you, but BDSM with romance –  bingo, you just hit the jackpot.

Review: Reaper’s Seduction by Linda Gayle

The Reaper's Seduction

This book is ok reading if you enjoy erotica more than an actual story.  But even then the erotica seems pretty standard to me.  There was a lot less tension than I usually enjoy between the characters and really nothing new.  There was a story in there, but I found it kind of  lean.   I have to say, at this point in my career, I am not enjoying these sort of books as I use to.  In fact I skip the sex scenes to get to the rest of the story and in this book I skipped quite a bit of pages.

I found the story to be quite interesting – more supernatural than paranormal which was an intriguing twist and I wish there was more of it to be exact.

But maybe I am approaching it all wrong.  Maybe the whole point of the book was the erotica and the story was just connective tissue.

But if you like your erotica with a bit of story, the writing is fine and the main characters very appealing.  I felt they were fully drawn while the supporting characters were not so much.  It had so much potential…

Not much more to say about this one.
